I bought a box of Japanese post cards. It is a series of 15 paintings depicting different steps of the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Yesterday, the tea ceremony club at our university were all dressed up in very cute kimonos and were giving out sweets and tea to anyone that passed by. I wanted to go there, but our professor had scheduled activities for use during most of this week, so we did not have time (it takes about 15 minutes to go through a quick version of the tea ceremony) to participate.
